In the Facebook post by the Albany Police Department we learned that five kittens were rescued by the Albany Fire Department while responding to a fire call overnight Sunday in Albany.  While investigating the smoke condition, they heard the kittens meowing inside the basement and that's when Albany's bravest placed them in bins and brought them  to the Albany South End station where they were safe and sound with APD officer John Polec.

The kittens were brought to an animal shelter and are awaiting adoption.
